Tim Gordon and I discovered over time that we are both somewhat afflicted with above-average anxiety. In this frank conversation, we get into some of the fears and anxieties (they are virtual synonyms) that have plagued us and how we got through rough spots. 

Catholics, particularly Catholic men, can often have a hard time accepting that they are so afflicted, as though feeling nervous is a moral flaw or sign of weakness.  This false belief, of course, becomes the basis for the next round of anxiety. We both think this very personal and transparent interview will be an important episode of The Patrick Coffin Show. Many suffer in silence. No more!

After this interview, you will know:

  • Why the Australian Dr. Claire Weekes made such a vital contribution to the management of nervous conditions and chronic, even deep seated, anxiety
  • The four steps of Weekes’ method: face, accept, float through, and let time pass.
  • How the fear of fear quickly becomes another cause of anxiety
  • The role of faith and a relationship with Christ can be a huge help in the search for inner peace
  • Why exercise and plenty of water is so important to recovery from anxious thoughts
  • Why facing and accepting bodily symptoms of anxiety is not the same thing as enjoying or embracing them
  • The anxiety of Christ in the garden and how to offer up ours with His

Most Americans (and many Canadians!) tend to view the political climate in Canada as hopeless, being run indirectly by LGBT activists, leftist public officials, neo-Marxist advisors, and most of it aided and abetted by a very liberal media establishment.

Even if this hyperbole were true, there are some people with conservative principles willing to step into the breach and run for office. My guest this week is one of them. Tanya Granic Allen is a wife, mother, professional communicator, parental rights advocate—and a practicing Catholic.

In 2018, despite rising popularity among Ontario voters, she was removed (illegally?) by Premier Doug Ford as a candidate for the Progressive Conservative Party leadership. That’s a longer side-bar story, but in this interview, she talks about “social conservative” values and how they shape voters’ decisions as much as economic or other factors. Her presidency of PAFE (Parents As First Educators) put pro-family, anti-sex education concerns in the public’s mind, which is a rare set of priorities in a Canadian politician. (Even privately pro-life ones are generally chicken to talk about it.)

But this unabashedly pro-life Catholic leader is a sign of great hope for a country under the spell of rabid secularism for too long.

 

In this episode you will learn

  • The explicitly Christian roots of Canada, as seen in Coats of Arms, and the founding documents of the country
  • How Quebec is a sign of what happens when faith is taken for granted, and then widely rejected in favor of worship of the state, er province
  • Why parents’ rights have now taken a front-and-center place in the public debate over the future
  • Why the Church calls Catholics to enter public service as elected officers 
  • How you can recognize politics as a dirty game, yet not adopt its corrupt assumptions and traditions
  • Why Tanya Granic Allen sees signs of great hope for the future of Canada, with Muslims, Christians, and unbelievers holding to the same basic ideals for an open and democratic Canada
